Praba Pilar expone los vínculos (y tensiones) entre el humano y el humano posbiológico: el ciborg, el autómata y el robot; entre el macromundo (la tecnología globalizada) y el nanobit, la encarnación y la informática.

Praba Pilar is a diasporic Colombian artist keen on disrupting the contemporary ‘Cult of the Techno-Logic’ through performances, digital and electronic installations, participatory workshops, and experimental public talks. She has a PhD in Performance Studies, is Director of the slow-tech MAKER Space at Pro ARTS, and is Co-Director of the Hindsight Institute.

 

Pilar dares to dismantle through embodied resistance the master narratives that promote uncritical embrace of the digital revolution while ignoring its unequal flow of information, labor and consumerism.

In the messianic space emerging at the intersection of biological sciences and economic enterprises, the Reverend of Nano Bio Info amplifies and distorts the spectacular claims of modern prophets, exposing pervasive illusions about the potential of technology to bring about salvation.
